LONE STAR REVIEW
The Last Karankawas by Kimberly Garza
From Ruthie Jones’s review:
Extraordinary literary fiction delivers quite the powerhouse of emotions and dramatic narration
LONE STAR EXCERPT
The Devil Takes You Home
by Gabino Iglesias
“The woman pushed Juanca away and grabbed his face with both hands. The thing she’d been holding in her right hand was a gun. A big gun. Her frail fingers were still stretched around it when she brought her hands up to Juanca’s face.”
Author Mary Alford shares titles that let the simple Amish world come to life before your eyes.
